The Second Baptist Pumpkin Patch is a fundraiser that supports student mission and ministry but it is also a community activity where people can not only shop for pumpkins, hay, flowers, and snacks but can also make meories with their children and families.
Our pumpkin patch also offers great volunteer opportunities for students or student organizations looking for community service hours. The following are ways to get involved and volunteer.
Prepping for the Patch – The last two weeks of September we have spots where students can come after school and move pallets and help us prepare the space for the arriving pumpkins. Sign up online.
Pumpkin Unload – Saturday, October 2nd. WE NEED VOLUNTEERS to help us unload an entire tractor trailer of pumpkins. We will use the same unloading process as last year so we need everyone to sign up online for specific tasks and times. Additional details about the process are on the sign up link.
Pumpkin Unload # 2 – Saturday, October 17th. We’ll unload a second truck two weeks later and this is also an online sign up.
Pumpkin Patch Shifts – Volunteers can sign up online for 3 hour shifts any day of the week. 10am-1pm. 1 pm-4 pm. 4 pm-dark. (Sunday, shifts don’t start until 12 pm). For students, we can be flexible with shift times depending on their schedule or availability.
Pumpkin Festival – Saturday, October 23rd. We are planning to have this even this year and are always in need of volunteers to help us provide fun and memories for children and families. Sign up online. We also love community groups who want to set up a trunk for our trunk or treat.
We ALWAYS appreciate the extra help from our community, especially on our unloading days. Thanks in advance for helping spread the word. We hope to see you in the patch as a volunteer, customer or both.
